Cat-loving veterinary students are encouraged to sharpen their claws and pounce on a scholarship opportunity from EveryCat Health Foundation and the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP).
The organizations are on the hunt for third- and fourth-year cat-focused veterinary students to receive one of two $2500 scholarships. Recipients will be selected based on academic achievement, financial need, and demonstrated leadership, as well dedication to and excellence in the study of feline medicine, health, and welfare.
“We recognize the important role veterinary students play in elevating feline medicine,” says AAFP’s chief executive officer, Heather O’Steen. “It is vitally important to provide our future feline veterinarians with the resources and support needed to improve the veterinary experience for cat caregivers and veterinary staff alike.”
Submissions will be jointly reviewed by AAFP and EveryCat Health Foundation. In addition to a short application form, students are required to answer two essay questions, explaining their interest and background in the health and welfare of cats, as well as their future career goals as they relate to feline medicine.
The deadline for applications, including all supplementary documents, is March 21. Recipients will be notified by April 25.
